So, I’m watching the Obama press conference on his ObamaCare “fix,” and the guy–predictably–continues to score high in the no shame category. All this BS is everyone else’s fault, including the Republicans for the shutdown. The buck never stops here with this guy. Never. He’s an egomaniac. But we knew that . . . all of us except Walter Mondull speechwriter Charles Krauthammer (who became a “conservative” as a business move) and George Will.
First, there’s Obama’s “fix,” in which he claims that he’s going to allow people to hold on to their original–but now-canceled–insurance policies. He claims that state insurance commissioners have the power to order this. But, in fact, states cannot force insurance companies to continue plans that are officially canceled. And even if they could, will all 50 of the state insurance commissioners order what Obama wants? Good luck with that. If I were a Republican state insurance commissioner, I’d tell Obama where to go and not order what he wants to put a band-aid on his giant dungstorm. And even if the insurance companies have to restore the plans they canceled, they will charge more. The costs have gone up. Insurance companies have had to send out letters canceling plans, and they spent time and resources figuring out which plans were not up to Unaffordable Care Act snuff.
Then, there’s Obama’s absolutely absurd claim that ObamaCare–which has not yet gone into effect–has reduced healthcare costs more than at any time in the last 50 years. HUH? It’s increased everyone’s costs geometrically. Everyone except those being subsidized. Is he gonna insert a “fix” for that? Nope. Status quo a year from now, conveniently just until after the November 2014 Congressional elections. Well isn’t that special? This guy is a clown (though a smart clown and puppeteer). But, again, all of us–except Krauthammer (who FOX News tells me is “brilliant!”) and Will (also in the FOX stable of lame horses overdue for the glue and dog food factories)–knew that.
And is Obama gonna change or “fix” the fact that many docs now say they cannot stay open under ObamaCare and will refuse to be a part of this giant Titanic of healthcare? Nope.
Obama was axed (no, not a typo) at the press conference if he will own up to his lies and screw-ups with ObamaCare, now that the public trust in government is at an all time low. Instead of a mea culpa and acknowledgement of that, what does he do? He blames it on the government shutdown, which was ages ago, and says that for the first time in over 200 years, the American people were worried if the government would be able to pay its bills. Are you sh-ttin’ me, Obama? Really?
PUH-LEEZE. The American people were never worried if the gubmint was gonna pay its bills. They were worried that, under exponentially exploding premiums imposed on them by ObamaCare if they will be able to pay THEIR bills. And they continue to worry about it, today’s BS press conference and fake “fix” notwithstanding. There have been many government shutdowns. This was hardly the first one in 200 years and won’t be the last. Nobody cared at all about it, other than the government workers who were planning their sudden paid vacations and laughing at all of us chumps.
So, to sum up, there is NO change to ObamaCare. It’s still a giant clusterbleep. And the Obama preening and lying continues.
Like I said, soooooo predictable.
